Bernard Vanlauwe's Integrated plant nutrient management in sub-Saharan Africa: PDF

Soil degradation and nutrient depletion became severe threats to agricultural productiveness in Africa. Soils can't offer the amounts of foodstuff required and yield degrees decline speedily as soon as cropping commences. This publication addresses those matters and contains papers from a world symposium held at Cotonou, Benin, October 9-12, 2000, geared up through the overseas Institute of Tropical Agriculture, Ibadan, Nigeria and the dep. of Land administration of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium.

The importance of this event is double: to reduce ammonia pollution of the atmosphere and to limit nitrogen loss in compost. 7. Advanced Microbiological Analyses for Maturity Determination It is difficult to determine the stability and maturity of a particular sample of compost by visual analysis, or any single analytical parameter. Compost that no longer is undergoing rapid decomposition and whose nutrients are strongly bound is termed stable; unstable compost, in contrast, may either release nutrients into the soil due to further decomposition, or it may tie up nitrogen from the soil.

The Dewar flask self-heating test is considered a very robust test and in a comparative study, it was the most sensitive indicator of compost maturity. This test showed changes throughout the 57-day biosolids composting period evaluated. 4. Respiration Biodegradable material is degraded throughout the composting process. Microbial degradation under aerobic conditions is called respiration (organic matter is converted into water, CO2 , inorganic compounds, and humic matter). The respiratory activity is directly related to the endogenous supply of degradable material.

Stearothermophilus often is dominant, almost like in a pure culture. Most probably, obligate anaerobic bacteria are also common in composts, but so far, very little information is available. During the preparation of agaricus substrates, Eicker (1981) found evidence for sulfate reduction under thermophilic conditions. Actinobacteria Actinobacteria prefer neutral or slightly alkaline pH and are able to degrade relatively complex substrates. Several are thermotolerant, or even thermophilic, with a temperature range from 50 to 60◦ C.
